Haller, a senior, placed seventh in the men’s race, completing the 8-kilometer course in a time of 23 minutes, 25.0 seconds. It was the second time Haller earned first-team all-conference honors, as he also accomplished the feat in 2017.

Parle, a sophomore, placed seventh in the women’s race, finishing the 6-kilometer course in a time of 20 minutes, 22.7 seconds.

The top 15 finishers in each race earned first-team honors.
